WTH is wrong with me?!

Yesterday, I'm sitting on my couch after work trying to figure out what to do about my crappy job when it hits me:

5 years ago, if you told me I'd be working for what basically amounts to adult day care, I would have laughed in your face.

Then I started thinking:  What went wrong?  I've let myself believe that I would never be able to go back to hospital work after I got hurt and had surgery and 2 painful years of recovery.  I've let myself be told that I was only an adequate RN after working for 7 years as an ICU RN.  What the hell was I thinking?!

I know I'm a damn good nurse, and that up until the last 4 years, all I wanted was to be a critical care nurse.  What happened?!

Well, forget that!  I called up a buddy of mine to take advanced life support, and I'm applying for a job in our ER!  There's 2 open, and I want one!

Finally!  I lit a fire under my own ass!

Remember, it's just a ride!


  1. Yes, that's awesome! Good luck and keep us posted!

    My wife wants to become a doctor but got a little lazy with it since she can't afford schooling right away. She also lit a fire under her ass and now she's volunteering in the ER at the local hospital. I'm so happy for her.

  2. Good luck with your venture!

    I sometimes wonder where I will be in my life five, ten, maybe even twenty years from now. Hopefully with a job. :P
